Treatment can affect physical and cognitive abilities. Public schools are required to make accommodations and provide special education services. An individual education plan (IEP) can be developed to meet your child's needs. If listening and speaking is easier for your child than reading and writing, using audio tapes and oral exams can help. If your child has trouble finishing tests on time, untimed or take-home tests can be arranged.
High school and college students
Older students benefit from taking an active role in their education. It can be challenging for parents to balance how much direction to give, and how much independence to allow. Work with teachers and counselors to meet requirements for graduation and college admission. Working as a team and making good use of available resources can help your child succeed.
